BREAKING: CA Senate Votes to Ban All Semi-Automatic Rifles With Detachable Magazines
The Truth About Guns.com | 29 May 2013 | Robert Farago

Posted on 05/30/2013 3:51:28 PM PDT by Windflier

After Connecticut upped the anti ante, The Golden State Senate is doing its level best to reclaim its title as America’s number one slave state. To that end, “The California Senate on Wednesday approved a package of seven gun control bills, including background checks for people who buy ammunition, introduced in response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.” Well, the latimes.com would say that wouldn’t they? Not to mention burying the big kahuna in the tenth paragraph. “The Senate also approved a bill that would outlaw the sale, purchase and manufacture in California of semiautomatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines. SB 374 also would require those who own such weapons to register them with the state.” Welcome back my friends to the nightmare that never ends. More details in the morning.

Remember kids, cell phones, I pads, tablets, are all
weapons to the state.

In the soviet union, ownership of a printing press
or even access to one could be worth your life, so
keep that in mind.

Unconstitutional via US v. Miller and then recited in DC v. Heller.

These idiots also voted to ban bullet button mag releases, which is strange because they created bullet button mag releases via law.

For all you CA men (I write that with wonder), real men have ambidextrous magazine releases that drop standard capacity (30 round) magazines from their MSRs.

This has gone too far already, but this is getting to the point you won’t be able to own a gun in CA.

I am glad I am not living in CA, but it should alarm everyone how unconstitutional these State laws are getting.

This may end badly.

And, I as read it elsewhere, you (or, a kalifornian) can't transfer or sell it. I guess it becomes the property of the state, by default.

SB 374, which prohibits the sale, purchase, manufacture, importation or transfer of semi-automatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines

There will be thousands of new felons created...Grandfathers, veterans, moms, pastors, etc who will not comply and not register their guns. These are unConstitutional infringements on our enumerated rights, and Democrats will be crossing the line into full blown Marxist tyranny.

Not to mention these laws will not stop criminals, or mass shootings..not one bit.

Democrats are going to cause themselves the worst beating in 2014/16 they’ve ever seen.

Jerry Brown...you sign these...you will be responsible for your parties national suicide and the Tea Party will be there holding signs with your face on it.

People pass laws against that which they fear. The Third World trash that has captured our California government is frightened of a backlash and they are terrified of modern weapons in the hands of people not from the Third World. Those in California government know they are treading upon us. They will move heaven and earth to confiscate any and all guns. That is their goal up the road.

Yep. And the laws have to survive the inevitable legal challenges. But when your liberty depends on the Constitutional analysis of Governor Moonbeam, you got trouble right there in River City.

No, they won't. Are you forgetting that the high density population centers such as LA, Sacramento and San Fransicko are what put these traitors into office in the first place?

Your statement is what we said when they made the drop safety test for handguns law. The AWB law. The Barrett 50 ban law.

This is what the majority of voting kommiefornians want.

Nah, not these people. They're just flexing their communist muscle, thanx to the dope heads, fags and wetback (as in, "Operation Wetback", a federal operation back when America was still great) voters in LA, San Fran and Sacramento.

Moonbeam told them this was the first time they've had a dimocRAT supermajority. Take it for a spin, etc. They're just trying to see how far into communist china they can drive before they see a stop sign.

I’m speaking on a national level> CA is far gone...but nationally what happens in CA will resonate in other states. Who wants a Moonbeam and Feinstein in their state after watching how they’ve been trying to ban guns...confiscate...and tear apart the Constitution. What’s happening now in CO, the backlash...watch. The Democrats over-reaching is a huge miscalculation of the American’s love for their guns and their Bill of Rights.

I used to live there. I loved that state. Camping and fishing in the Sierras. Couple hours from the ocean. Couple hours from the mountains.

I used to think I'd move back. No more.

My Winchester lever action holds 21 long rifle shells. No clip involved. There is a semi auto with the same type of feed.
The lever action can prob can be fired almost as fast as a semi auto!
If I would need more than 21 shells to do what is required I would need to give up the project!

I think they have to pass in the Assembly before they go to the Gov's desk for signature. We'll see how that goes. Some members are from pro-gun rural areas.

I certainly hope you’re right. But states like Oregon and Colorado have allowed themselves to become infested with refugee kalifornians. I don’t know if they’ll heed the warning.

That's because you short-sighted yahoos never get it: what is happening here is already happening in your states, too. Most of you are holding on to conservative majorities only by 3 or 4 points. That can change virtually overnight. So while you sit there and smugly congratulate yourself for being so "smart" as to live in a red state, and you tell yourself that this could never happen where you live, you might literally wake up tomorrow and find yourself smack-dab in the middle of a blue area. Then how smug will you feel? Are you going to go looking for a place to run, then? Look what happened to Colorado. It was deep red in 2004.

You seriously need to rethink that. The more screwed up that (absolute stinking sewer of a) state becomes, the more kalifornians flee to other, formerly good, states.

They've already destroyed Oregon, Washington, Colorado, New Mexico, etc. Not to mention cities like Austin, Tulsa, etc.

We should care very much what happens there.

Also, other well established commie states like Connecticut and New York all seem to be in a contest to see which state can violate the Constitution the most. Kalifornistan has just upped the ante.

Treason is popular among California politicians. This is clearly unconstitutional, and I hope defending this law bankrupts their government before it is overturned. Evil should be punished - the voters who supported these nutcases, along with the petty tyrants who wrote this terrible law.

I've been trying to convince my eldest son of that fact for years now. He was a Rush baby who wound up voting for Obama (after I moved to Texas).

I've told him that California is headed for armaggedon, but what do I know? I'm just a 60 year old Freeper who follows the socio/political situation in this country closer than 90% of the public.
